Olive Garden Penne Pasta W/ Tomatoes and Ricotta

Olive Garden Penne Pasta W/ Tomatoes and Ricotta created by FoodieFoodie

If you love ricotta and penne, this dish is perfect! I wanted to post in case anyone else wanted to try, plus, you can see the nutritional information. This makes a great somwhat lighter tasting dinner or a great lunch. I would recommend that if you want a little kick add a few dashed of red pepper flakes or a little bit of cayenne pepper. otherwise serve with a great salad and some garlic rolls.

    Good concept, however the herbs somewhat overwhelm the dish. I would use less next time for my personal preference, otherwise - great!

    Very good! Great August meal, as many of the ingredients were plucked right out of my garden! I used 2 cloves of garlic, and added mushrooms, and it was a great summer meal.
